The article presents information on mergers and acquisitions with financial institutions across the globe. The top European and Asian institutions are looking to solidify their positions as leaders among the global banks through acquisition activity in both home and foreign markets. Though the capital markets do penalize banks that don't post revenue or earnings growth with lower relative valuations, the markets are also quick to punish the company seeking acquisitions and with good cause. Nearly 70 percent of banking mergers and acquisition activity resulted in the acquiring party failing to recoup the purchase premium.
